Living in a small space can be a smart thing to do, especially if you are just the only person living in it, and you are content with the space’s simplicity. It is also easy to dress up. But such spaces sometimes pose a challenge to you — the limited floor plan may make everyday tasks difficult for you.

If you are transitioning to a more efficient living arrangement, then modular living is something you may want to consider. Such a lifestyle highlights simplicity and the purpose of the furniture pieces. Below are only some of the things you may want to do to have a much modular lifestyle.

Use multi-purpose furniture

The last thing you would want to do to bring in furniture pieces that will not fit into your space. What you should do is use multi-purpose furniture instead. These eliminate the need for another furniture piece if such a function is already present in an existing furniture piece. For one, instead of getting a separate bookshelf, you can get a bed with bookshelf underneath it.

Find other creative ways

Living in a small space is very much like an exercise of creativity. If you have a vertical space, you can use a loft bed and have your workstation underneath it. The space under the stairs can be used as a cupboard. And the spaces under your floorboard can double as shoe boxes.

Ditch the door

You may not realise it, but the door can take so much space. When you open it, it occupies the empty space behind it, which can be a place for shelves. What you can do is ditch your current door and go for internal cavity doors.

You may see limitations in your small space. But it will always be an opportunity to exercise your creativity and run your imagination.
